Abstract:

In studying the diffusion of charged particles in a weakly ionized plasma, the motion of the charged component of plasma relative to a neutral-particle gas is usually examined. In this case, the coefficient of diffusion is practically independent of the charged-particle density and the diffusion process is described by the ordinary linear equation of diffusion.
